Sport Management

The roar of the crowd. The thrill of competition. And a career that keeps you in the heart of it all.

You’re passionate about athletic competition—always have been. You have a keen sense of management and like working with people. You see yourself forging a career path that keeps you connected to sporting teams, coaching staff, and athletic events, even if you’re not an athlete yourself.




Whatever sports career you’re training for, the Flagler College Sport Management program helps you cross the finish line. Students in our sport management program have gone on to pursue careers in:

  • Event and facility management
  • Professional sports marketing
  • Tournament coordinators
  • Professional team management

Using Service Learning Projects to Understand the Fitness and Recreation Management Industry

The Recreation and Fitness management course at Flagler College aims to help Sport Management students understand the unique aspects of the recreation industry.  Through field trips and service projects students learn to identify and analyze management issues in recreation, focusing on the public sector.  The photos below are from a recent project with the St. Johns County Park and Recreation Department.

As guest services coordinator for the Houston Astros, Chris Martin, ’15, is able to pursue his passion in sports while giving back to others.
When I’m not doing schoolwork or working, I’m either volunteering or catching up on my sleep. I’m lucky to find both my job and my school activities fun!
